Founder Jack Ma celebrated his Chinese e-commerce company Alibaba’s 18th anniversary on September 8 in style.
The billionaire and one of the most celebrated entrepreneurs in the world dedicated his performance to Michael Jackson.
He entered the stage on a bike donning a black-and-gold mask and performed on the King of Pop’s iconic song, Billie Jean, emulating Jackson’s pelvic thrusts and hand flips. He then removed the mask and invited others from his team to perform with him. Together, they grooved to the tunes of the very famous numbers Dangerous and Black and White.
Ma has a reason to celebrate his company’s 18th birthday in style, notes a Quartz report. “The company’s stock has endured a rally since January 2017, and its valuation recently passed the $400 billion mark—putting it just a short distance behind Amazon.”
Social media can’t get over Ma’s moves. This is what they had to say:

This was not the first time Ma, a fan of theatrics, regaled his audience in such a grandiose celebration. In 2009, he sported a heavy metal wig and performed parts of the Lion King in front of thousands of employees at the company’s 10th anniversary.
